Green ear.

One night when the moon shone bright,

A ghost appeared

He walked the track

with a sack on his back

and his earol painted green.

The late F.W Avery.

A day of seduction?


f5inwaterThis is the saucy minx of an F5 that I use to take most of my photographs with, coupled with the sexy little prime of a 28 mm lens. Add a roll of Agfa APX to caress the back of the focal plane shutter and I’m in for a sensual day of picture making.

With camera in hand I stroll out gateinshadeinto a bright day with a gentle heat, fanned by a breeze that shifts the leaves on the trees. Now looking at the image in the view finder that is alive with dancing shadows I wait with finger poised touching the trigger in growing anticipation, waiting, waiting for the right breath of wind to push the shadows into place to complete the composition the eye so lusts for.

Click! anticipation spent, I turn away moving to the next flirtatious view to hookonwallseduce my eye and so the day is flirted away click by click. Before I know where I am an entrancing morning has been teased away.

Not quite what I had in mind when I started writing this cheeky post but it does sex up the thought process behind the taking of each image made. A bit of fun at my expense. Believe it or not there was such a day and the pictures that illustrate this post are the results. A full days exposure and legal too!

Paws n’ Claws Pet Food Run & Xmas Carol Service


petfood-runSunday 21st December 2014
Depart 10.30am

One week after the annual Xmas Toy Run and again meeting at the cafe to depart at 10.30am, is the annual ride out to attend the Mayhew Animal Home in Kensal Rise,  NW10. Established during the reign of Queen Victoria in 1886, the home is entirely funded by and dependent upon public support.

Being the season for giving, we must not forget the animals, so often overlooked and neglected, and which entirely rely on places like “The Mayhew” and the generosity and support of all.

The Mayhew welcomes gifts, to include towels, blankets (used as bedding) as well as pet food and treats for cats and dogs.

Private donations can also be made on your visit to the Mayhew. You may even find a furry friend that you may wish to adopt!
For those of you who can’t make the run, there will be collecting tins on the counter and a collection box for food, treats and bedding etc at the cafe from Monday 8th December.
